Two really big things:

1) Hyundai need to get an approved dashcam that can be dealer fitted without buggering up the warranty. Lots of people want dashcams and some insurers are starting to offer discounts;

2) This is really not forgivable: they could do this tomorrow with a software patch! My version (UK Premium SE) knows the speed limit of the road via the front camera. It seems incredibly reliable - it even copes with the M25 variable speed limit on the overhead gantries around London.

These:

However, given it has that AND the road speed to hand, WHY does it not have a configurable "you are speeding" beep warning???? So trivial and so useful. In Britain, the speed limit on any given road can switch from 20/30/40/50/60/70 several times in a couple of miles on the same bit of road (eg can be 60, then 70 for a dualled section, then 50 or 40, then drop to 30 for a village and even 20 if passing a school in the village). The M25 variable limits are all over the place and about 1/3 of them have speed cameras right on the back of the signs, linked to the current limit.

I would WELCOME a reminder that I was drifting over the limit. It's incredibly hard to stay on limit in Britain given both the frequency of the speed limit changes and the information overload of the ridiculous number of signs there are on a road.

Minor annoyance: The Tucson needs a few more cubby holes - places to put coins for parking, hi-viz vests for europe, 1st aid pack - that sort of thing, The glove box and centre cubby are only so big.

A small coin cubby in the top of the dash with a lid would be nice. I realise with power seats, they cannot really get drawers under the front seats - but I bet they could get a small cubby under the rear seats if they tried.

PS I love my Tucson - but this thread is about what they could have done better.

It is a matter of opinion of course, but I find it not bad overall. Perhaps I was mentally geared to expecting worse aka "cheap", being an asian car? My main annoyance is the join between dash console moulding and the rest of the front shelf - that line reflects like crazy in the sun in the windscreen. A continuous moulding would have been much better.

I would like to see a few more options for style though - black and beige are not much of a choice! A bit of wood or some dash stripes in a coloured leather would jazz it up so much with minimal expense - MINI are masters of this sort of trim detail, even though I don't think the actual build quality of a MINI is any better than a Hyundai, despite having BMW behind it.

PS forgot the red interior - but that's only available with a few body colours - none of which I like.

Try setting it to a cool temperature, then turn the AC on manually (so the light comes on) then back off. Seems to work for me anyway.

My annoyances:
Key fob detaches too easily and is too susceptible to "pocket dialing".
MP3 play order is determined by alphabetical file name within each album. Not the track number in the id3 tag.
Panning on the map does funny things if you hold your finger down too long.
One-touch open/close of windows is only on the driver's window instead of all four.
I wish the light level sensor (for automatic headlights) was in a different place. I use a windshield sunshade that blocks the sensor, so when I first start the car it thinks it's night and puts the headlights on and dims the dash for a few seconds before it realizes "oh, it's not night!".
The mismatched high beams/fog lights/HIDs....

1. The auto-headlights turning on and off on a cloudy day/bridge. If it turns on, it should stay turned on until I turn it off or the car shuts off to extend life bulb life. My last car went 10 years on the same two bulbs.
2. Transmission shifting shenanigans
3. Seconding your one-touch window only. I wonder what the cost difference is?

I recently rented out a Jeep Renegade while on vacation and compared it to the Tuscon (see thread) and the annoyances on it were way more than the ones on the Tuscon. So glad I have the Tucson.

Yaa for me, 200th post.

The honeycomb pattern on the rear bumper between the gray valance and panted section. It collects road dirt which isn't really the issue but cleaning it is.

Wish my 2017 AWD 1.6 T had power folding mirrors... couldn't believe $44,000.00 didn't get me this feature.


Does anyone know if the car has heated side mirrors or not? I turned on my rear defrost today as the mirrors were wet from rain and they didn't seem to dry like my 2009 Elantra. Im wondering if there is no heated mirrors...

I agree.
